The streaming community responded to a recent tweet made by Kick informing its patrons about the impending mobile device app. The tweet revealed that the development team has been working on releasing an app for the newly launched live-streaming platform.
Its counterpart Twitch already has its app that is free to download from the App Store (on iOS devices) and the Google Play Store (on Android devices). Kick has yet to launch any mobile application since entering the fray on December 6, 2022.
The situation, however, appears to be changing very soon, with the platform hinting at a possible release of the app. Reacting to the news, one user expressed enthusiasm:
"Hurry the hell up!"
When will Kick release its app? The social team gives encouraging update
Since entering the streaming world in December 2022, Kick has grown from strength to strength. With the platform celebrating a million users on February 16, 2023, the next step for the website is certainly to establish itself within mobile devices. Regarding the possibility of an app, the social media team announced the following:
"For everyone asking. Yes there will be a Kick app and yes we are working hard to release it soon! Stay tuned."
The tweet, unfortunately, did not give any time frame within which the app could be out. However, it won't be surprising if it does come out within the next few weeks to months.
The streaming community was certainly up for such an idea. Taking to the replies, Twitter users made a slew of comments. One user jocularly stated that they expect the app to be out within the next two weeks:

As previously mentioned, Kick has been making waves in the online community. In just three months since its launch, the platform has managed to attract some of the most high-profile content creators and celebrities, such as Adin Ross, a well-known Twitch streamer and YouTuber, and Drake, a famous rapper musician.
This level of success in such a short period is a testament to the appeal and potential of the platform. The platform will likely continue to grow and expand its user base with more big names and exciting content in the future.
